Hello everyone, I just got back into riding a bike last month (hadn't touched one since I got a drivers license but was missing out.) I started out with a used comfort bike to attempt to walk my Husky around and ride the new bike trails near me. Then I figured out I was only 7.1 miles from work and that it should only take me a bit over a half hour to get there.
This is my 3rd week riding to work and my best time on the comfort bike was 27.5 minutes and there is many more hills then I noticed in the car heh. I got bit by the bike bug hard and got clipless sandals and pedals, Switchback headlight, etc.
Then I was helping my friend look for a used bike and ended up finding myself a cool 80's Japanese road bike and the difference is amazing. I made it home in 22 minutes the other day. Needs more work then I expected but should be worth it.
Anyway, would be cool to find others to ride with and I also want to start racing once I start eating healthy again and get in better shape. I'm 27 so I'm getting a really late start but oh well.
